3 beeps usually means you have a bad ram stick, but it could be different depending on the manufacturer of your machine.

Beep codes are used by the BIOS during the POST to report certain initial system errors.
If you're hearing beep codes after you turn your computer on, it typically means that the system has encountered some kind of problem.

depending on the type of beep your motherboard makes you can get to know what your problem is. below are beep code links for various BIOS manufacturers. check yours.

When i turn on mt pc it beeps 9 times and noyhing


What you are hearing is a "post error code".

The codes vary depending on the manufacture.
For instance if you have a Dell 2400 trying searching the web for "Dell 2400 post beeps".

Although I believe 9 beeps is commonly a CMOS error.
If so, you can try clearing the CMOS.
You will have to know how to get to the Computer BIOS screen to set things if you do clear/reset the configuration.

When turned on,makes long buzz, no video,rest of pc still runs


Do you mean beep? Beeping may occur due to RAM corruption (indicated by three long beeps). Failure of input or output devices may also cause beeping. first unplug the RAM, if the same beep continues, then the culprit is RAM. if not,then replug it and unplug the KeyBoard. do the same with the rest of the I/O devices. Also try to put ur processor in ur frens PC, and vice versa, then u'll know if ur processor or the motherboard is not working.
